Xiaomi Mi 7 may have an iPhone X-like notch

first_imgThe Mi Mix 2S may have completely overshadowed Xiaomi’s proceedings with the Mi 7, but that doesn’t mean its next flagship isn’t happening. It’s certainly happening and a new leak now suggests that it may have an iPhone X-like notch up-top even though it’s Xiaomi that started the trend of launching an original bezel-less phone in the name of the Mi Mix. The Mi 7, it seems like, may not be all that original like Xiaomi’s past bezel-less offerings.The leak, that seemingly shows off the front glass panel cutout of the alleged Mi 7, shows the phone having a non-existing top bezel in the form of a notch, and a bottom chin that’s also barely there, smaller than what we’ve seen in the Mi Mix 2. The notch is seen carrying the cutout for the front camera, which can be considered as a relief especially after what we’ve come to see — and experience — in the Mi Mix and the Mi Mix 2.Although the leak makes no specific mention of the hardware set at hand it is widely speculated that the Mi 7 will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor and also sport a dual camera system on the rear.In other new, Xiaomi is gearing to launch the Mi Mix 2S, in China on March 27. The Mi Mix 2S, which is apparently code-named Polaris, has been subject to numerous leaks and rumours. The Mi Mix 2S will come with a FHD+ 18:9 display and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor under the hood. It will be based on Android Oreo, and will be backed by a 3,400mAh battery. Rumour as it that it will come with up to 8GB RAM and up to 256GB storage.advertisementIts rear camera will further bring in AI features that would apparently help it detect scenes and hopefully change the way it takes pictures accordingly. The phone, in addition, will support dual-SIM and have an IR blaster much like most Xiaomi phones.The Mi Mix 2S, it seems like, would be an incremental upgrade to the Mi Mix 2 packing in next-generation hardware and some fancy new AI tricks. The Mi Mix 2S, will also reportedly, come with a dual camera system on the rear which should be a step-up from what we’ve seen in the Mi Mix 2.last_img read more

first_imgzoomIllustration. Image Courtesy: Pixabay under CC0 Creative Commons license The first all-electric straddle carrier in the United States is scheduled to arrive at the Port of New York and New Jersey by the end of this year.The pilot program is the Port Authority’s most recent initiative to meet greenhouse gas reduction targets set forth in the Paris Climate Agreement.Under a partnership with the Port Authority, Maher Terminals has agreed to pilot test the all-electric straddle carrier for a year on its container terminal at the Elizabeth Port Authority Marine Terminal to determine its operational and environmental benefits.It will be the first test of an all-electric straddle carrier anywhere in a United States port, according to the Port of New York and New Jersey.“The one-year pilot test will explore the level of greenhouse gas emissions that can be reduced by the all-electric straddle carrier. By not emitting any tailpipe gases, this single all-electric straddle carrier will reduce greenhouse gases from the equivalent of 52 fewer passenger vehicles,” the port authority explained.At its October 25, 2018 meeting, the Port Authority’s Board of Commissioners unanimously embraced the Paris Climate Agreement. The resolution adopted by the Board called for a 35 percent reduction by 2025 in greenhouse gas emissions generated by the Port Authority’s own operations. The Board also reaffirmed the agency’s prior commitment to an 80-percent reduction by 2050.last_img read more

CALGARYRAISED PAUL SUNHYUNG LEE ON FINDING HIS APPA IN KIMS CONVENIENCE

first_imgAdvertisement Paul Sun-Hyung Lee as Appa in Kim’s Convenience. STEPHEN SCOTT / CBC LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Login/Register With: Advertisement Facebook It was during his early days as Appa in Ins Choi’s hit play Kim’s Convenience that Paul Sun-Hyung Lee realized just how convincing he was in the part.At a Toronto Q&A held after a performance a few years back, Lee said he heard something like a gasp from the audience when he began speaking. The Calgary-raised actor has played aging patriarch Appa Kim nearly 500 times on stage and for two seasons on the hit CBC sitcom based on the play, which takes place in a Toronto convenience store and focuses on a dysfunctional Canadian-Korean family. But he is not Appa Kim. For one, he doesn’t have the accent. He also had significantly less grey hair at the time and was also least was 20 years younger than the character he was playing.“There was this huge rumbling,” says Lee, in a phone interview from his home in Toronto. “I couldn’t understand why and then it was ‘Oh, yes, this is my voice. This is how I actually sound.’ People started to laugh and clap. The reactions have ranged from people being completely floored and saying ‘Oh my God, that’s even more incredible’ to people being disappointed and saying ‘Oh, so it’s not real?’ I think it’s a huge compliment as an actor when it doesn’t even occur to people that it’s an accent that is being put on.” Advertisement Twitterlast_img read more

Lack of offense frustrating as Ohio State womens ice hockey drops both

Ohio State junior forward Claudia Kepler (24) controls the puck during a game against Bemidji State University on Nov. 6 at the OSU Ice Rink. OSU lost 2-1. Credit: Eileen McClory | Senior Lantern ReporterThe Ohio State women’s ice hockey team is still searching for consistency after losing both games in its weekend series to Bemidji State, falling to 4-6-0 on the season.On Friday, the Buckeyes lost 2-1 despite outshooting the Beavers 22-17 in what turned out to be a stifling defensive game. Freshman forward Dana Rasmussen scored the lone goal for OSU. Senior Hannah Moher and sophomore Bailey Wright scored for the Beavers.On Saturday, the third period began tied 1-1 with the Buckeyes leading in shots 27-14. But two goals late in the third period gave Bemidji State the victory and the series sweep.“I think for the most part we controlled both the games. I thought we outplayed them for the majority of the game,” OSU coach Jenny Potter said. “I think there were just a few times that our players broke down mentally.” Bemidji State junior goaltender Brittni Mowat started both games for the Beavers, allowing just two goals on the weekend despite facing a combined 55 shots in the two games.“Bemidji has a great team, but they’re not invincible. We had plenty of scoring opportunities, plenty of chances, our team needs to learn how to bury them,” Potter said.Redshirt freshman Alex LaMere started both games in goal for the Buckeyes, turning away all but three shots on the weekend, while going through long stretches of quiet net play. With the lull in opportunities to save shots, LaMere said she just tries to stay locked in.“It’s definitely a mental game at that point, you just have to keep sharp on your edges,” LaMere said.The second game opened with the Buckeyes holding an 8-1 shot advantage, but the team believed the tempo of the game picked up considerably as it wore on. LaMere said she thinks the defense was able to keep pace with the Beavers’ attack. “Our defensive zone has come a really long way,” LaMere said. “(The skaters) stick with your girl, if we can play five-on-five that way we’ll be just fine.”LaMere expressed no frustration in having sit through a quiet first half of play before a run of fast-paced play in the final 30 minutes.“Yesterday we saw a lot of the same thing as today, it started off slower and then the pace picked up, from a goalie’s standpoint. (We) just have to keep moving and keep in the game,” LaMere said.Bemidji State entered the weekend series with one of the top ranked defenses in all of college hockey, however, OSU expressed frustration at the opportunities missed having outshot the Beavers in both games.“I guess they’re learning the hard way,” Potter said. “It can be frustrating as a coach, but it’s the learning process they’re going through.”Senior forward Kendall Curtis, who scored the lone OSU goal on Saturday, voiced her irritation with the lack of offensive results, but she said she believes in the team’s system.“Sometimes it can get frustrating, but we what want to focus on is getting new looks and how to create new offense, that was our focus,” Curtis said.Curtis’ goal was the product of strong communication and game planning with her linemates: sophomore Julianna Iafallo and junior Claudia Kepler.“We really know our roles,” Curtis said. “We know that the best way for us to operate is by playing with some giddy-up, winning battles, keeping it simple, keeping our feet moving.”Curtis, who earlier this week was named an alternate captain, said she thinks the play of her line is important to the success of the program, which is struggling to score with only 22 goals in its first 10 games.“The giddy-up we bring to the ice every shift is really important,” Curtis said. “We know that.”The Buckeyes are set to begin a five-game road swing when they travel to face North Dakota in Grand Forks for a weekend series on Nov. 14 and 15. read more

I’m learning off them every day, so I couldn’t be in a better place.“I’m sad to see him [Diaz] go, but he wants opportunities, so good luck to him.

IDG Communications CEO Steps Down

first_imgMichael FriedenbergMichael Friedenberg is stepping down from his role as CEO of IDG Global Communications after 12 years with the company, effective immediately, IDG announced today.Friedenberg’s four year tenure as CEO was one of persistent change for IDG — whose brands include CIO, ComputerWorld, PCWorld, and MacWorld — as it evolved from a traditional publishing model to a more centralized, global business information organization, focused its growing data and marketing services businesses. He helped steer the company through both the passing of founder and longtime chairman Patrick McGovern, in 2014, and the eventual sale to China Oceanwide Holdings Group for about $1 billion, a deal made official earlier this year.Indications that the company was going through some transitional pains then popped up in May, when a mass round of at least 90 layoffs hit both senior-level executives and staffers at all four of the above-mentioned titles.In a statement, the company said the cuts were the cost of IDG’s ongoing transformation “from a decentralized and complicated organization to navigate and do business with into a globally streamlined company that provides the greatest possible value and best possible experience to our readers and customers.” Kumaran Ramanathan“The timing was right for me to step down from this position, given IDG’s overall health, strong leadership team and a desire to be closer to my family,” Friedenberg said in a statement. “IDG has a very bright future ahead thanks to the talent, passion, and commitment to excellence of our employees around the world, coupled with the incredible leadership and financial resources that China Oceanwide offers.”China Oceanwide has kept things internal to replace Friedenberg, naming Kumaran Ramanathan president of IDG Communications, effective immediately. Ramanathan until now held the role of CEO of IDG Global Services, a group that oversees IDG’s Global Solutions, Strategic Marketing Services, Corporate Sales, and Research divisions. Altogether, he’s been with the company for nine years.“I am honored by today’s announcement,” added Ramanathan in the statement. “I was fortunate to have worked with Michael for many years as he led the company through the unexpected passing of our Founder Pat McGovern and transformed the company to become the world’s largest technology media, data and marketing services company.”last_img read more

Benefits of feeding dogs right during monsoon

first_imgHair shedding, immunity issues or an infection – the answer to these problems faced by your dog can be found in their diet, say experts. Pet Experts and Veterinary Surgeons, suggest a few dietary tips and tricks to take care of your pet this monsoon:Fighting infections: Diet is the one of the most important elements to solve the underlying problem of yeast build up and its resulting infections throughout a dog’s body. One of the symptoms is excessive itching, in case such symptoms persist consult your vet. Add balanced fibrous food to your dog’s diet to ensure regular bowel movements, which in the rainy season can be a blessing as the exposure to outdoors can be restricted. You can try to engage your dog in some indoor exercises to prevent weight gain. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfBuilding immunity: A dog’s diet is the foundation of building good immunity. Every dog’s requirement for nutrition is different. For instance, a large sized adult dog’s nutritional needs vary from that of a small sized adult dog. An ideal wholesome meal should contain Vitamin C, Vitamin E and Omega 3 fatty acids as they have important immune and anti-inflammatory functions that contribute to a dog’s health and vitality. Your dog’s meal should contain these nutrients. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveTaking care of your puppy: New born pups are the most susceptible to infections. There is an ‘Immunity Gap’ when they wean off their mother’s milk and this is an extremely crucial time to ensure that they are fed a diet which has been carefully designed to deal with the situation. To bridge this gap, it is imperative to feed them the optimal pet food which contains colostrum. Since, colostrum is first milk produced by the mother immediately after giving birth, it is highly important for newborn pups. Colostrum can also be found as a special ingredient in select packaged pet foods. Pet food fortified with colostrum is proven to enhance immune response in pups for an overall promotion of their digestive and immune health and response to vaccination. Avoid hair shedding: A pet’s coat is the reflection of its health and the food that it consumes. A shiny and healthy coat is the result of optimal nutrition which is a key to a dog’s general well-being. Provide your dog with high quality diet with digestible protein sources. Foods with Omega 3 fatty acids also play an important role in promoting a healthy coat with minimal shedding. What to avoid this season: It is quite common for pet owners to feed their pets with whatever is on their plate or the leftovers. Avoid raw meat, raw chicken, excessive fibrous vegetables and raw or cooked bones.
